Necklace Display Redo

I have several old necklace displays that I was given years ago by a nice lady who was closing her jewelry business. They are inexpensive cardboard backed black velvet, quite beat-up & they don't match my setup. Needless to say, I don't use them very often. But I hate to throw them away & new displays are expensive. So I got the idea to recover them.

If you've looked at my booth pics, you know that it has an organic look. Lots of linen and wood. I wanted these to integrate into that theme. I got a spool of jute twine from Home Depot. Using a glue pen, I've wrapped the display front and back, top to bottom. It's looking really good! Much better aesthetically and also sturdier and heavier. Nice upcycling!!


  1. Wow, I did not think to do this and this is a very smart idea. Yes, you are correct that it is truly expensive to buy new busts. Thanks for this article. This will help me in doing my first jewelry show. I wanted to integrate linen and wood. Thanks!
